Tacoma is virtually a beautiful place

Travel is an immersive experience, and while we can't visit a place in person for a while, we can still explore virtually. Google has been slowly and steadily encouraging people to take 360-degree photos, and Tacomans and visitors have stepped up. 

360-degree images let you jump into the picture. Here's a shot from Chinese Reconciliation Park on the Ruston Way Waterfront.

So while you're at home, why not explore virtually, and look ahead to brighter days, when you can see all these places in person.

Just click on the attraction, and the link in the description will take you to a 360-degree image that we thought was pretty sweet.

And if you have a few extra minutes, one photographer has been particularly busy, and submitted enough 360-degree photos that you can jump from one to another in these virtual "tours" of:

Point Defiance Rose Garden

Fort Nisqually Living History Museum
